Thank you for sacrificially giving and faithfully interceding for unreached, unengaged people groups (UUGPs) across Southeast Asia. With nearly 200 UUPGs in this region containing over 11 million people, your gifts help us travel to locate, map, and study them so we can share the gospel of Jesus Christ with those who have no access to the gospel.
Five new believers follow Christ in baptism. Your partnership made it possible to share the gospel with nearly 2400 people this year. A number decided to follow Christ, and recently, five were baptized. We continue seeking out national partners responding to God’s call to share the gospel with others, and we trained 577 in effective evangelism techniques in 2023.
God has called us specifically to work with UUPGs because they have little to no access to the gospel. This year, our team took 24 trips across Southeast Asia and visited 68 UUPGs or unreached cities. In each location, we worked to identify essential linguistic and cultural traits to formulate an evangelism strategy for reaching the people.
Join us in prayer.
We are immensely grateful for your generosity! Your prayers and gifts address the world’s greatest problem, lostness. Thank you for partnering with us in this ministry.
Thank you for your sacrificial gifts to our Advance Team and one of our primary ministries, “Pushing Back the Darkness Among Unengaged Peoples.” Encouraged by generous givers like you, our team is reaching out to unreached and unengaged people groups (UUPGs) living here in Southeast Asia.
Love of Neighbors. The government estimates that between 1999 and 2002, around 9000 victims died in the regional conflict between Muslims and Christians. To this day, our team sees the impact of these hostilities. Unfortunately, many believers are still scared and harbor hate in their hearts. Talking with people about loving their enemies and sharing about Jesus feels like an uphill battle.
UUPG Contacts. Recently, our team visited eight UUPGs in this region. They met over 400 people and shared the full gospel with 256 of them. Through the Holy Spirit’s power, six people committed their lives to Christ! We are following up with them, and one of them, a young man named Kam*, has started studying Jesus’ commands with our team.
Your prayers and gifts help address the world’s greatest problem, lostness. Thank you for partnering with us in this project to identify unreached and unengaged people and share the gospel with them.
Thank you so much for your generous support of our team and one of our primary ministries, “Pushing Back the Darkness Among Unengaged Peoples.” Because of your gift, we are locating and mapping the places unreached and unengaged people groups live (UUPGs) and developing a network to reach them.
Last year, your partnership enabled us to train more than 500 people in how to share the gospel. We also shared the full gospel with over 900 people and saw several people receive Christ! Praise God, the number of unengaged and unreached groups on our list is shrinking! As we research, we discover more about each people group, and sometimes we realize the people are now reached or engaged. We share the good news wherever we go, but so many people are distant and not open to the gospel. Thankfully, on occasion, we find some Christians who live close by the UUPGs.
Thank you so much for your kindness, generosity, and partnership! Your prayer and gifts are truly making a difference through this project! Please prayerfully consider making another gift to support this ministry in 2023 so we can continue to identify unreached and unengaged peoples and share the gospel with them.
Because of your generosity, long-term workers and national partners visited 16 unengaged unreached people groups (UUPGs) over the last six months. Teams have traveled and shared the gospel, prayed through these areas, and trained other believers to share the gospel. These teams will return to follow up with those interested in hearing more about Jesus.
These teams have also found interested people who believe what we said but have not yet repented. Sometimes we meet Christians from other people groups who live near these unengaged groups.
At times, natural disasters occur where our UPGs live. Because of your gifts, we are ready to meet needs when it does. These are great times to share the love of Christ with them by providing food and supplies. We have helped in several areas lately.
From the skyscrapers of Hong Kong and vast plains of Mongolia to smoky rainforests hiding winding rivers edged by golden sands, the natural beauty and long history of these Asia-Pacific Rim countries testify to God’s creative hand. This vast region houses four of the most populous global cities, as well as the country with the world's largest nominal population of Muslims.
Spirituality swirls through cities and countryside like the smoke from temple incense sticks. Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus, animists, Daoists and ancestor worshipers live here, comprising 851 unreached people groups who have never heard that freedom is found in Christ. Pray for divine appointments for Christian workers to share that Jesus is the way to peace with God and eternal life. Ask God to glorify His name among the peoples of the Asian Pacific Rim Peoples affinity.
